Everybody's Crazy for a Long Grassed Man

The other day I happened to see a couple walking by down our side street from my office window. That is where all the good spying is. Just ask B. Anyhow, the couple were all wrapped up in each other and kissing while also walking a dog. Now THAT is some talent folks. They were older. He was hunchbacked. She had white hair.

I then thought to myself "Wow there are TWO old couples in this hood that like to make out in public places." Nope. Turns out I was wrong. There is only one couple. It was them. Our long grassed neighbors. Apparently he is hunchbacked. Although not from yard work.*

Later that day, I told B this story. He was not as shocked as I except for the part where they ventured from their yard. That was so unusual. As we were speaking, they came out into their yard. One had a claw and one had a shovel. We watched in quiet anticipation. Was this the moment they would start to garden?** Would there be a lawnmower involved, we wondered.

Then they started making out and all our hopes were dashed.




*Can you even get hunchbacked from yard work? Who knows. Maybe a doctor. I am no doctor.

**Know what else I noticed that day? They compost. Really? They cannot cut their grass but they can compost?

What part of claw and shovel triggers a makeout session?! Obviously yardwork makes them horny, they never seem to get to it.

You could send an anonymous postcard...

Have they cut the grass at all this summer? If they haven't, surely it has become a nuisance and is harboring bugs and vermin. What if you started a small controlled fire in their yard? Your brother could keep things under control and their yard work would be done.

Can you take a picture of this lawn??

I wonder if they think you guys are the weird ones??

Debbie - I don't know. We must not be as romantic as they are.

Dog - good idea! But then I wonder, since we are really the only ones that can see it, won't they know it is us?

Jamie - I don't think so but it is not hugely long. In fact B's Dad said I made it sound longer than it is. B backed me up by saying it has just stopped growing. Now, the part about my brother and the controlled fire? Awesome! He would love that!

Jennifer - I will try. And they undoubtedly think we are the weird ones!
